A photo of a waitress working her shift with a toddler strapped to her back is inspiring working mums.
The image of Kori Dotson, a waitress at the Greenback Drug Store & Diner in Tennesee was posted to Facebook by a customer who was served by the multitasking mum carrying her two and a half year old son on her back.
“Shout out to this awesome mom doing what it takes to make ends meet and shout out to her work for allowing her to bring him!” the Facebook post read.
The town had experienced a major power outage and the diner was swamped. “I had to work an extra shift, but my babysitter wasn’t home, so I asked my boss if I could bring my son, Rhody, and she said yes,”Ms Dotson, 26, tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
“My boss is amazing — she’s a mom herself, so she understands these types of situations.”
So she loaded her 13kg son into his carrier and worked the room, allowing Rhody to assist with wiping down tables, rolling cutlery in napkins, and setting tables.
“He also passed out menus, refilled the sugar bowls, and held the dustpan while I swept,” she says.
Good on you, mum!
